Dutch Design Deltas

At Dutch design.school we use the Design Thinking methodology 'Dutch Design Deltas' to guide you through the essential steps of Design Thinking.

Our methodology is based on the intuitive workflow process of a designer. Teams are led through iterative loops which take the participants through the three main levels of a startup. 

The Dutch Design Deltas offer an even balance between creative and analytical methods. More information can be found here: Design Methodology: Dutch Design Deltas

 

 

Context design

Customer design   The team steps into the end users’ shoes – not only interviewing them, but also carefully observing their behaviour. Instead of solving the problem as is, the team will find out what the real problem is.

Concept design

Concept design   Solutions and ideas are concretized and communicated in the form of prototypes as early as possible. Potential users will test them and provide feedback – long before the completion or launch.

Business design

Business design   The team will focus on market strategy and scaling up. They develop the early adopters and will make the switch towards the mainstream market (crossing the chasm).

The game elements in our programs motivate teams to (re)define the real problem and formulate the solution with a greater sense of adventure. Different perspectives and experiences consciously flow into the solution process.
